One can have better idea about the next upcoming movie of Shoaib Mansoor which is Bol. On releasing Khuda kay liye he changed the picture of Pakistani film industry. Film won many national and international awards. Pakistani cinema was not ever being able to compete Indian cinema and when the Indian movies were being started to show in Pakistan the film industry of Pakistan had to show a big fall. But no one can change the truth that one project of Shoaib Mansoor can defeat many bollywood movies.
Film is produced by Showman and written and directed by Shoaib Mansoor. The film cast includes Atif Aslam, Humaima Abbasi, Mahira Khan, Shafqat Cheema, Manzar Sehbai, Zaib Rehman & Amr Kashmiri. Shooting is done in Lahore and many students of NCA assisted Shoaib while directing the movie especially in sets design. Just like khuda kay liye, Bol also depicts a story very close to realities of life. A story of family suffering with poverty but holding set of values that we inherit and tightly hold on to it. It will take you into the life of a family with house full of daughters, their sufferings, their emotions, hardships and resolves. It will make you to think the worth of human being.
Atif Aslam, Humaima Abbasi and Mahira Khan are first time appearing on the cinema screen. After being so much successful as a model and actor on television, Humaima is playing a role of daughter who respects the norms and values given to her by parents but she is the one who is affected the most by family tensions.
The expectations are very high and people are waiting to see it on big screen. Fans of Atif Aslam are desperate to watch Atif first time on the screen as acting. And we are in no doubt that Bol would be another hit of Pakistan cinema industry and will let the people proud on talents of Pakistani entertainment industry.
No one can have control over natural disasters. Earthquakes, flood, storms are faced by many countries. Pakistan has very versatile climate. Rainy season, especially monsoon, always comes up with destruction. The 2010 was the year when Pakistani people had to face big crisis. About 20 million people affected with flood and about 2000 died. But this was not enough because the remaining people were left with diseases, worst living condition and dirty water.
But today we will not discuss the bad effects. Let think about the efforts of people, their unity and support of agencies to come out of this disaster. First of all we would mention the help of Government to whom we blame all time. Government of Pakistan provided relief camps in various regions of Pakistan. Food, clean water and doctors were available all the time in the relief camps. Not even this but there were public schools in which the children used to take classes and teachers were appointed by many NGOs. The Pakistani government promised a sum of money to all families affected by the floods in order to help them rebuild their destroyed houses.
Pakistan was also supported internationally by UN agencies, WHO and many NGOs. The United Nations launched its relief efforts and appealed for $460 million to provide immediate help, including food, shelter and clean water. By the end of August, the Relief Web Financial Tracking service indicated that worldwide donations for humanitarian assistance had come to $687 million, with a further $324 million promised in uncommitted pledges. Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and Kuwait—had pledged more than 10 million.
In the last we would not forget to mention the kindness of Pakistani people towards their brother and sisters who were suffering from big crisis. The efforts made by every citizen of Pakistan are countless. This was the time when it was seen that people united to help their poor suffering people. They sent food, cartons of clean water tanks, cloths, bedding and monetary help. They have shown that Pakistani people are helping and kind when they are called for help.
May God protect Pakistan from natural disasters and other hard times and keep us unite to face any crisis that is heading towards Pakistan.
In the history of Pakistan aviation industry we can find very limited number of airline companies. In the past many companies started their operation and closed within few years. Financial crises, political issues, management conflicts etc. could be the possible reasons of their shut down. Currently 3 airlines companies are giving services domestically as well as internationally. PIA exists since the inception of Pakistan and it is considered as national carrier, whereas Shaheen Airways and Airblue are the private companies. In comparison with PIA, the other two airlines are covering only 4 cities domestically.
Airblue started its services in 2004 and till 2011 there was no any other airline company entered in the industry. As the competition is not very intense within the three companies so the prices are keep rising day by day and it was thought that only new arrivals can increase the competition level and so the prices may reduce. At last, there is a happy news for all the aviation lovers and passengers. A new airline with the name Indus Air is going to start operations in Pakistan. It is competing PIA on the domestic routes and very soon it will win the international market share as well.
This new arrival is not only bringing the change in aviation industry but it will have huge impact in economy. First of all is the rising of competition level. The airline fares are expected to reduce and the quality of service is expected to rise. Secondly another big change will be the employment opportunities. Professionals, experienced and fresher will be required in many departments.
Air Indus has got 4 A320 aircrafts and as soon they will get AOC from Civil Aviation Authority, Pakistan, it will start its services. So we wish Good Luck to the new entrant for surviving in the industry where the history is not very good about new airline companies.

The Kunhar River, swollen by glacier melt, passes through this village as it meanders its way through the valley.

Education is declared free in Pakistan but literacy rate is not increasing, why? Government of Pakistan is spending very much on education projects and inaugurating many public schools in small towns but still we have no change in literacy percentage. There are many factors behind his slow progress and in this article we will try to high light few.
Providing building and furniture is not the only responsibility of the Government. One of the major problems in our public sector educational system is poor staffing. The teachers are neither educated nor they are equipped with latest tools and techniques of education. They are under paid and due to this they show no motivation towards their duties. Most of the time they remain absent from school or if they come they have no directions or plans to take children towards new dimensions. Sometimes one teacher teaches more than one class at a time. Besides this there is absence of equipped libraries and laboratories, and lack of physical facilities like playgrounds, drinking water and washrooms.
Another reason of poor education system is No check and balance. The Government authorities have no concern towards the progress of school after making building or providing infrastructure. Dirty rooms, broken walls of schools and rooms without fans and electricity are the results of poor security system. The school areas are used for illegal activities and no one is there to ask. The classrooms are used for keeping arms and drugs and no one dares to throw them out.
It is always seen that the children of poor people are sent to the Government schools where those who have some money they try to send their children to private schools. Thus the conditions of these schools never change. If the children from all level are sent to the same school then the things would change dramatically. Education is a key to success of any country and we all should think as one nation. Private schools should have space for poor children and Government should invest more on human resource of the educational institutions because unless the people would dissatisfy they would not bring the change.
